As part of its Creator Expert range of sets, Lego will debut a massive Sydney Opera House model in September.
We've seen an official Lego Sydney Opera House set before as part of the toy company's Architecture range, but let's be honest: an awful lot of detail got lost in the model's tiny size.
Lego's about to do something about that, though. On 1 September, Lego fanatics will be able to get their hands on an insanely detailed, 2989-piece model of the iconic building designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon in the 1950s. And, at 28x63.5x38cm, it's going to be huge.
The model is offering a few neat perks for Lego brick collectors: rare dark-tan Lego bricks, tiles and sloped bricks, as well as the company's first-ever 48x48 stud baseplate in blue — and the curved white pieces that form the Opera House's sails.
The Sydney Opera House will be joining other iconic buildings, like India's Taj Mahal, France's Eiffel Tower and England's Tower Bridge as part of the Creator Expert range of oversized models. It will retail for AU$399.99.
We dare Lego to do the Sydney Harbour Bridge next.
